According to the Oz, we are signing up to a new defence strategy that sees winding the clock back 50 years to when we were the exemplar of a running dog of US imperialism. Supposedly the strategy identifies China and Russia as major threats, replacing Islamic terrorism.

The seppos given the relationship between Putin and POTARSE will be confused by this.

What has China done to as it were, raise a red flag. They are a key trade partner. I cant remember the last time they invaded another country, had govts removed etc.

Our pollies are absurd.

The lamentable David Feeney jumps before being pushed.

The Greens should win his seat but apparently* there is a bunch of infighting there as well with moves to deselect the candidate who nearly won it in 2016.

Australian political parties COARIAB.

Batman FFS! That used to be one of the safest ALP seats in the country. Fistful of fifties and a brothel come to mind. The Greens may just get another rep.

A pisspoor state of affairs when the loathsome Greens are strong chance of picking up a HoR position.

I wonder if they'll track down which backroom bureaucrat sent the full cabinets off to the disposals store?

I would have voted tory ahead of Feeney if I was in that seat, same as I would always vote against Michael Danby, aka Member for Israel.

Of course Id also vote against the MM and Pope Andrews as their first loyalty is to that occupied part of inner Rome.

Ftliw, I could never vote for Shortpants. Would vote Green and give my preference to the Tories.

From the SMH:

"Former Family First senator Lucy Gichuhi has defected from the crossbench to join Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's government.

The Kenyan-born lawyer had been voting as an independent following the dissolution of her previous party but will now sit as a fully-fledged Liberal Party senator for South Australia."


------------------------------------------------

This takes the LNP senate numbers to a guaranteed 30 (once another LNP vacancy is filled).

So she replaces Bernardi who defected. Overall a pretty good trade for the Tories.

Agreed. A good trade. All the tories need in the Senate is for Anaxi to defect and be replaced by anyone (even Bernardi)

Speaking of whackers, seems the lustre has dimmed on newly minted Senator Molan. The Dumbo ex career military bloke reposted a Brit First video of dubious provenance equating Islam with violence. He did not post vids from leadership of the illegal attacks on Falluja.

It was remarkably stupid of the Tories to preselect a central figure from the criminal invasion of Iraq.

Belated congrats to the poster boy of Christian rectitude Barnaby Joyce who is to be a dad at 55 to a bub from a former staffer, who is 22 years younger.

As an adherent of beliefs in fairies at the bottom of the garden, he clearly eschews contraception. Perhaps he follows the Vatican's recommended rhythm (and ensuing blues) methods of birth control.

I've got to admit I love it when family/Christian values type pollies get hoist on their own petard. I hope he's worth a mint and the wife gets well more than most of it.

And the many kiddies.

Yep I agree entirely.

I know for a fact certain former Tory dep leader had a relationship with a Maoist, not that there is anything wrong with that.

His ASIO file would make interesting reading. Maybe that is why he was not allowed to be PM. Of course he always professed the most high minded of Christian values and have no doubt he was/is genuine. The bloke himself was pretty lame but not the worst to tread the boards of the Amateur Tory Light Opera Society.

There were two members of Joh's cabinet who (obviously) were very well hidden in the closet.

Who was the US politician who dared the media to catch him up to no good in the eighties?
